qrzlogger (https://github.com/exitnode/qrzlogger) is now installable via pip:
# python3 -m pip install qrzlogger
All this Python packaging is new to me so I hope it works.
I am thrilled how far you can get with 4w transmission power (SSB / Phone). The uBitx is a surprisingly nice TRX! The map shows the result after a few evenings of operating the uBitx. #hamradio
I'm in the progress of developing a Python command line application to log QSOs directly into the QRZ.com logbook.
It's still in its early phase (started today) but it is already able to query call sign data from qrz, list all previous QSOs with that call, ask the user for QSO data and then upload the QSO via the API.
There is no input validation or hamlib/flrig integration implemented yet but it's kinda usable - on an alpha level.
I received and built my new uBitx v6 QRP transceiver yesterday. Connected to a lipo battery and the 4-BTV vertical it gave me a few QSOs with Bosnia, Denmark, Poland and Austria. Very impressed so far!
The first mod will be the addition of an AGC.
After my failed attempt to bring up the G7FEK I decided to also take down the 40m EndFed and to try something completely different. I purchased a Hustler 4-BTV, lots of wire and two bags of concrete. Status: The installation of the "mast" is finished and I managed to bury 26 radials - which was no fun at all.
This weekend I’ll try to bring up the G7FEK antenna. Not sure if I’m able to provide the necessary height or to place the pretty long radials in a good way but I think it is worth a try. #hamradio
Thanks again @SM0RVV, this looks nice (if you ignore the fact that the interference is not so nice):
